Joining up Care
The Fife Health and Social Care Partnership are working on reviewing and transforming a number of aspects of the delivery of local health care. The three main areas include the Out of Hours Service, Community Hospital Beds, and the development of local Community Hubs.There is currently a public consultation in progress until the 8th October 2018. We would strongly encourage our patients and local population to consider the proposals carefully and send in their views and feedback to the consultation at:
mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org or 01383 199/01592 226 859
One area of potential controversy is that the current Out of Hours proposals do not include a base in the East of Fife albeit they do significantly increase the home visiting capacity of a future service and we fully anticipate that the option to access Kingscross in the Out of Hours period will remain.
Non the less, your views are crucial and we would be grateful if you would share them through the contacts given above.
